Once injured however, it forced me to look at different aspects of the game. Now at 27, I am all about tactics, energy efficiency (efficiency in general), flow of the game, etc. I wish I had been able to gain this passion and knowledge when I was in High School because I would have no doubt been able to play in college. I'm fine with the way things worked out though because it's really hard on the body.

Damn, I wish I was 27 again. You are still in your physical prime. You might be too old to play college ball but not old enough to dominate your local parks.
